Oil and cold wax

During an artist residency in Wales I one day passed an old slate wall deteriorated by time and weather. There was several layers building up, due to water running over the stones. As I started painting after this inspiration, I starting thinking about what time does – both to nature and to people. As we go through life we too store both good and hard experiences in layers of memory. You only show the outer layer – the surface – but everything you went through is hidding unterneath the surface – and bits are peaking through.

Everywhere I travel I am always ending up with tons of photos of old walls and eroded surfaces. The story they are telling are so inspirering to me. Wish theese old walls could tell their story. In my painting I try to build up the same history, and often I write words and marks in the layers.

I live with the forrest as my neighbour, and I love walking in the wood. The trees somehow came sneaking in the window manifesting themselve in some my paintings.
